Postdoctoral Research Associate Interview

Postdoctoral Research Associate
Cambridge, MA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at MIT in December 2013.

Interview Details – MIT media labs contacted me after I applied online. I was extremely surprised that they even considered me. I thought I was fortunate to get this response from them. I was scheduled to talk to a staff member from the lab from the biological side. She spoke to me and asked general questions about my PhD, my interests, computer vision and machine learning. I did OK and I didn't expect a callback as a result.

Interview Question – What is my experience in biomedical/retinal computer vision?   Answer Question
